ACC in the morning: Watching Weatherford, Miami

Not so fast, FSU fans. Those of you who have already bought your No. 14 jerseys as your vote for Christian Ponder this season might want to know Drew Weatherford hasn't conceded anything just yet.
Here's an interesting tidbit about Miami from the South Florida Sun-Sentinel: The last time Miami had this much inexperience at quarterback was in 1983, when Bernie Kosar led the Hurricanes to a national title.
This just in: Resurrecting Miami's program ain't easy.
The Florida Sports Writers Association College Football Media Days are going on, hence the news from Miami. Here's the Palm Beach Post's take on it. Here are some notes and quotes that were in the Orlando Sentinel, which is getting the silent treatment from George O'Leary. And of course, the Miami Herald was there, too. And the Florida Times-Union.
For those of you Wolfpack fans paying attention to what's going on at South Carolina (Aug. 28 season opener), you might be interested in Steve Spurrier's latest vote of confidence in quarterback Tommy Beecher.
In NC State's own backyard, Tom O'Brien, Butch Davis and David Cutcliffe got together Thursday at the Triangle Pigskin Preview. These guys have a sense of humor (O'Brien's rather dry). But it's also July. The Raleigh News & Observer had a similar take on it.
Here's a belated thought on Virginia Tech starting the 2009 season in the Georgia Dome, much like Clemson is this year: Georgia Tech -- and Georgia for that matter -- can't be happy about this.

Oh, geez, I hate it when this happens.
